Eat, drink but don’t forget yourself

Where do you come on your list?

I bet you have been making lists of all things that you need to do, get, or get done before the big day, most of us do. What I was wondering is, where are you on your list?

For many people the drive to ensure that the needs of others are taken care of can leave them in a situation where their own needs are never met. This is often more true for women than men. The natural nurturing role of the wife, partner and mother is the glue that helps keep society and families together. Though this is often to the detriment of the woman.

The idea that charity begins at home starts right here. You are as important as everyone else and you, like them, have the right to have your needs met. Whoever you are and whatever you are doing this Christmas take the time to look after yourself.

So, consider the festival and all that you are doing for other people and just check where you fit into this. How will your needs be met? And, if you have not even considered your need perhaps this is the time to change so that it takes you into account.

Be happy, enjoy Christmas and live in the present

Take care
